The NCAA has made a big change to some transfer portal rules for the upcoming season.

Before, some players had to sit out a year after transferring to a new school but that’s no longer a thing.

Players can now be immediately eligible to play as long as they are academically eligible and in good standing at the previous school.

The decision will be final once the meeting ends on Thursday.

“Council changes transfer rules, permits immediate eligibility for transfers who are academically eligible/in good standing at prev. school & meet progress-toward-degree requirements at new school. Decision not final until meeting ends Thursday, must be ratified by DI Board Monday,” the NCAA tweeted.

Nobody will have to sit out a year anymore for no reason.

The spring transfer portal window opened on Tuesday and will remain open for the next couple of weeks (Apr. 30). During that time, a lot of players will enter the portal as they’re looking to play for new programs.

It’s turned into the Wild Wild West and programs are scared about players that could be poached off their teams.
